More Fall Glory in Purple and Gold at Soos Creek Botanical Garden

I don’t mean to overdo it with the fall themed posts, but glory surrounds us this time of year in the Pacific Northwest and after a visit to Soos Creek Botanical Garden yesterday I had to share a few more pictures with you if…

Blue

I hope you enjoy these fanciful jellyfish as much as I did today at the Pt. Defiance Pacific Seas Aquarium.  I thought they’d be a nice fit for the Sunday Challenge at ‘Travel with Intent,’ where this week’s word prompt is Blue. ~ Susanne

Yellowstone Lake and West Thumb at Sunset

It took us five trips to Yellowstone to finally make it to West Thumb Geyser Basin.  We weren’t purposely neglecting it.  It’s just that Yellowstone is such an enormous park, with thousands of hydrothermal features spread about in so many geyser basins, you can’t…

Buffalo, Hot Springs, and Geysers O My!

We just returned from Yellowstone National Park where we spent five days (our longest stint yet) on our fifth trip to the Park.  How shall I convey to you the magnificence of that place? Shall I start with its history?  And tell you it…

For the Birds

I turned on the stream for the birds to drink and drenched the trees with water for them to shower.  All the regulars were there and grateful.  The chickadees and nuthatches flitted about through the wet foliage, calling to one another and ruffling their…

Mt Baker Wilderness Under Smoky Skies

Despite the smoky skies over Washington this week, we managed to find beauty in the Mt Baker Wilderness Area, which shares its eastern border with North Cascades National Park. We took the Mt. Baker Highway to its end at Artist Point for views of…

The Skagit

We went to the Skagit to see the eagles. But found the real attraction was the landscape. And the sunset over the river. ~ Susanne P.S.  The Skagit River lies a couple of hours north of Seattle and is part of the Wild &…

Serene Sedona

Last week we visited beautiful Sedona, Arizona, where Oak Creek runs through majestic red rock in the midst of trees ablaze in yellow and gold.   All was peaceful and serene. And so for this week’s Photo Challenge I thought it only fitting to…

Temporary Morning Brilliance

“Susanne, are you awake? You’ve got to see this.” My husband the early riser had been out for his morning walk when the sun was starting to rise. I was awake and jumped out of bed hoping to capture that temporary morning glow before…

Green over Blue in the Pacific Northwest

A Saturday and I woke up feeling kind of blue.  Needed some green for the cure and so we hit the road heading east looking for it.  After thirty minutes or so, traffic slowed and cars lined the road on the approach to Rattlesnake Lake.  Oh!  It’s a Saturday in summer…

Reflections on Deep Lake

After a lovely dinner and drive in the country we ended up at Deep Lake in Nolte State Park. It was a study in green. ~ Susanne

Daily Prompt: Calm Clothed in Beauty

I looked about for calm and found it in scenes of beauty. ~  Susanne, from the calming beauty of the Pacific Northwest via Daily Prompt: Calm
